The new Bose Panaray MA12EX Modular Line Array speaker

Clear talk and music reproduction over the entire frequency range – for indoor and outdoor

Bose MA 12 Panaray

Bose expands the Panaray ® MA12 loudspeaker family with the new Panaray ® MA12EX Modular Line Array speaker. This provides engineers and suppliers of sound systems now an even wider range of solutions for acoustically demanding situations, both indoors and outdoors are available. The speaker provides a clear and intelligible voice reproduction and natural sound without additional bass boost.

In the new Panaray Speaker MA12EX work twelve weatherproof 2.25 “high-excursion drivers that have an accurate music reproduction over an extended frequency range. For the first time in a MA12 speaker Bose ® Articulated Array Loudspeaker Technology is used, which ensures that each driver is accurately aligned, and so even at higher frequencies a broad, balanced sound for every listener is created – in the front as well like in the back rows, and even next to the stage.

With its elegant and very sleek design, the speaker fits seamlessly into almost any architecture. And thanks to its weatherproof housing, it is for a variety of applications suited – both indoors and outdoors, in churches, parks, auditoriums, railway stations and airports, patios, shopping centers, restaurants, conference facilities, sports stadiums and multi-purpose buildings.

ToneMatch Audio Engine
Five reverb types (small, medium, large, plate and cavern) available for global assignment, with individual channel controls for decay time, mix level and brightness.ToneMatch Features:

  • Three delay types (analog, digital and tape) can be independently assigned to selected channels, with control over feedback time and mix level for each channel.
  • Ten modulation effects (three chorus types, two flange types, four phaser types and one vintage tremolo effect) can be independently assigned to selected channels, with control over designated parameters for each channel.
  • Seven dynamics processing types (three compressors, limiter, de-esser, kick gate and noise gate) can be assigned to independent channels.
  • Chromatic tuner for convenient tuning of instruments.
  • Large backlit display with intuitive layout and easy-to-read text for modes and settings.Rotary encoder for quick access to modes, effects and parameters, including ToneMatch presets, zEQ, ParaEQ, reverbs, delays, modulators, dynamics processing, scenes and tuner.
  • Aux mode (channels 1 – 3) send channels’ dry, pre-fader or post-fader audio to aux output for connection to additional L1 systems or recording devices. Independent level controls for optimal signal output.
  • Channel volume, mute and FX mute (1 – 4/5) for adjusting individual channel volume, muting individual channels and muting all effects on selected channels.
  • Phantom power applies +48V power to input channels 1 – 3 to drive specific microphones.
  • Mounting bar and carriage for securely attaching ToneMatch audio engine to L1 Model I or Model II loudspeaker.
  • Cover and carrying case help protect engine when storing and transporting.

Proprietary zEQ automatically adjusts the range of tone controls to match your voice or instrument, making it easier to fine tune your sound. Conventional mixers may have fixed EQ ranges that don’t accurately affect desired frequencies when adjusted. But zEQ appropriately redefines low, mid and high frequency ranges of specified sources. Single-band ParaEQ centers on frequency you specify for each independent channel. Valuable tool for reshaping problematic frequencies in certain venues.

Scenes allow you to store, recall and edit snapshots of all key ToneMatch audio engine settings at any given time. This feature helps simplify setup when you’re using an L1 system repeatedly in different venues. The engine includes five predefined Bose scenes, five My scenes and five Shared scenes you can give to other L1 owners.

Bose’ L1 Model I PA projects clean, detailed sound evenly across the stage and throughout an audience of up to several hundred, with little change in tone or volume while producing a smooth, consistent tone, whether you’re in front of the loudspeaker or off to the side. The L1 System eliminates the need for monitors, mixers or complicated PAs and reduces unwanted room reverberation. The innovative L1 Model I Cylindrical Radiator® loudspeaker allows for wide, uniform coverage throughout an entire room thanks to the line array of 24 small drivers mounted into a vertical enclosure. The coverage area is nearly 180 degrees which is very broad in comparison to conventional stage speakers where volume and tone diminish very slowly over distance.

[The] … sound radiates and fills the room in a way far more natural than
a typical loudspeaker… it’s a real breakthrough in amplified sound. …

-Guitar World Magazine; 4/04/09

The loudspeaker’s wedge-shaped dispersion pattern sends very little audio up or down, preventing much of the room reverberation that can muddy your sound. Unlike traditional amplification setups, a Bose L1 system lets you, your fellow musicians and the audience hear the same sound. You don’t need any other stage monitors, mixers or PA speakers. Your L1 system replaces them all with one sleek, powerful setup.
